Links sent from a friend won't open in the app

Links sent from a friend won't open in the app

A friend will send me spotify links for songs. When I click the link it will open the app but not the song. I have to open the web browser to see what he sent. I'm not logged in on the browser so when I click open app, it will open the app but not the song.

Hey there, welcome to the Spotify Community!

 

If I understand correctly then the issue is that even if the link opens in-app it does not take you to the content but to the home instead. Could you try the following and see if that makes any difference?

 

Open your Android settings and navigate to the app settings. Find Spotify there and click the open by default settings. Click the reset defaults or clear defaults option.

 

Then you can add all links to open in-app by default there (this differs based on the custom OS you are on). If this option is not available, you can click the link again and select Spotify with always option checked.

 

You can also share an example of the link or a screen-recording to show the same. Keep me posted.
